    Not necessarily my kind of thing… I could never get along with Coco in her Mademoiselle phase. But what prices to bring a smile to the eyes and it sounds like quality too.
    Well found that woman!

    1. Dear Mr Dandy,

      Actually I agree with you. It is ubiquitous now. However I did like the bits that went a bit NR for Her.

      Recently I stayed in a hotel and at breakfast, a woman had marinaded herself overnight in Coco Mademoiselle. I could tell this from thirty foot away. Now that’s just bad manners. At breakfast!

      Your friend

  2. Just adding a plea (in the hope that Yves Rocher are reading)… to please open a couple of UK outlets! I used to travel a lot to Brussels for work, and to France for holidays, and became a big fan of the brand – so much better than our Body Shop and the like. For me, although the mail order set-up is very efficient, there is nothing that beats just browsing around the shop and sniffing things!

    I’ve never tried So Elixir, but liked several of their other fragrances, as well as lot of their body products and other cosmetics

    1. Dear Alice,

      You are quite right- there is no substitute for a good sniff in person. I went to France last March and made a beeline for Sephora and Yves Rocher. Yves Rocher was just lovely- full of treats! The staff were charming and the little 60 cent bags you can buy were lovely .

      They would do brisk trade indeed over in the UK!

      best wishes
      Samantha
